SCREENING

Strangers on a Train

Sunday, Feb 4 at 4:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Snubbed: Robert Walker 

Dir. Alfred Hitchcock. 1951, U.S. 101 mins. DCP. With Robert Walker, Farley Granger, Ruth Roman, Pat Hitchcock, Leo G. Carroll. When wealthy Bruno Antony (Walker) meets handsome tennis star Guy Haines (Granger) on a train by chance, Bruno has a tremendous idea—they should “swap” murders: Bruno will kill Guy’s philandering wife so he can marry his girlfriend, a U.S. senator’s daughter, and in return Guy would bump off Bruno’s domineering father. Guy laughs off the harebrained scheme, yet Bruno has other plans. Hitchcock’s superbly taut thriller takes off from there, launching one exquisitely timed surprise after another. Walker’s perfectly sculpted performance as the alternately childlike and debonair dandy psychopath is the film’s true secret weapon, unnominated even despite an added sentimental factor: the film was released only months before his tragic death.
